The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) warns the public against the fraudulent activities of Atlantic Finance, a company that is illegally offering consumer credit.
Atlantic Finance is not an authorized lender or credit intermediary in Belgium, nor is it an authorized insurance intermediary, despite what the company states on its website. Atlantic Finance cannot therefore carry out any activities in Belgium as a lender, credit intermediary or insurance intermediary.
Moreover, according to the information available to the FSMA, it seems that the credit being offered by Atlantic Finance is entirely fraudulent. Additional information about this type of consumer credit fraud is provided in the general warning published by the FSMA on 13 May 2016.
The FSMA therefore strongly advises against responding to any offers of credit made by Atlantic Finance and against making any payment to it.
This company claims to have its registered office in Germany at Comeniusstraße 10, 81667 Munich, and uses the website www.atlantic-finance.com. It uses the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and the phone number 0800 99 10 20.
It also appears to have ties with Island Finance, a company which has likewise been the subject of a warning issued by the FSMA.
